    Notes 
    • Two independent researchers have done extensive work on two brothers, John and Richard Henry RICKARD, believing them to be the sons of John RICKARD and Jane POPPLESTONE. Their research demonstrates that these two brothers eventually made their way to Ontario, Canada, the name evolving to RICKERD in the process. Both raised families and died in Ontario. With regard to John, the documents show, "John RICKERD was a member of the 15th Company of the Corps of Royal Sappers and Miners. He enlisted in Truro, Cornwall in 1813 and upon admission stated his birth place was Wadebridge, Cornwall." Unfortunately Wadebridge is at least 35 miles from Landrake, Cornwall. There are at least two other John RICKARDs, ages 62 and 63, who were born in St. Stephens by Saltash, 3 miles from Landrake, and who can be found with families in the 1851 census; these need to be eliminated as a possible son of John and Jane. Given the discrepancy in birth place, along with the high occurence of this surname in Cornwall, it is difficult to rationalize John RICKERD was the son of John and Jane, and accordingly, his brother Richard, to be the Richard Henry RICKERD who died in Ontario. This is my personal opinion and until more evidence exists to prove differently I have decided not connect them to the RICKERD families in Ontario. (Anne Brooks) [2]
